Catalogue Number: 07L007
Description: The earliest work here is from 1918 and the latest from 1980 so this pretty much summarizes everything one can expect from Tansman's solo piano music: a foundation in Polish folk music as transmitted by Chopin with allusions to and pastiches of music from Bach to Stravinsky (the Nocturnes) with detours to Bali and the gamelan (Sonatine) and American popular music (the Préludes). Margaret Fingerhut (piano).
